The pigmented-spot shrinker

The beauty of our skin is a heritage that needs to endure our lifestyle. BASF experts found that pigmented spot reduction can be epigenetically managed. By increasing a specific epidermal tyrosinase regulator, DN-Aura®reduces the melanin production by melanocytes. The active ingredient, a 100% natural leaf extract from the Vietnamese tree ‚ÄúLangsat‚Äù or ‚ÄúDuku‚Äù (Lansium domesticum), helps to shrink the pigmented spots that appear with age and worsen under environmental factors such as sun exposure and pollution.Maltodextrin (and) Lansium Domesticum Leaf Extract
